Is there any way to compress the video file made by T1i?

The camera saves video in .mov format, using H.264 compression. The resulting file is huge, something like 3.5MB/sec. A 20 minute video clip would be around 4GB.

This seems unreasonably big when compared with other videos. I have downloaded 720p movies that are around 6-8GB for the entire 2-3 hour movie. Is there anyway to compress the T1i's video file down to that size or use maybe convert it to a more efficient file format?
